International treaties are most frequent means of creating international rules or standards that States and other actors of international community are supposed to abide by. Their importance has been highly increased in the context of modern international law. The enforcement quality of international law was often questioned which has been settled by the increasing treaty making process. Further the universality of human rights through the international treaties can be looked as an achievement. The international law believes that nothing can be done without or against the will of a sovereign State. International treaty law in this sense can also be called as a meeting point of the necessity to take international obligations. This paper therefore basically highlights the features and importance of international treaties from the perspective of international law. Further the issue of reservation in the treaty making process has been explained to be losing its significance as it isolates the State from the global arena.
